well to help with your shine, there are a few herbs that will help. marshmallow root gives great shine, gives amazing slip and helps with scalp problems. stinging nettle is meant to help with shine, i just got nettle water today will use it after my shower, so see how that goes.
give your hair a blast with cold water when ya done with everything, this closes the hair and gives shine and helps with fizz

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
